Richmond Height’s NOPEC Natural Gas Program Update

Resident’s and small businesses in Richmond Heights began receiving natural gas in March through our governmental opt-out program with Northeast Ohio Public Energy Council (NOPEC).  All Dominion East Ohio customers that were not currently with another supplier, and were current on their bills were included in the January ‘opt-out’ mailing.  Residents and small businesses that did not return their opt-out postcards were automatically placed in the NOPEC/NextEra natural gas program.   Dominion East Ohio then sent a notice in mid-February alerting participants of the change.  The discounted supply price will begin to appear on April bills for supply during the month of March.

The Cuyahoga County Solid Waste District is pleased to announce the recipients of its 2015 Community Recycling Awareness Grant

Grants totaling $161,311 were awarded to 33 communities and 13 schools and non-profit organizations in Cuyahoga County. Grants will be used to establish recycling and composting programs in schools and workplaces, purchase recycling containers for public spaces, conduct shred events, and educate residents about curbside recycling via brochures, videos, and mailers. These grants programs were created by the Cuyahoga County Solid Waste District to help promote and expand recycling in the county. Grants are awarded annually, on a competitive basis. Applications are due in February each year.
Last year, thirty-eight Cuyahoga County communities received a Community Recycling Awareness Grant which enabled them to collectively distribute recycling information to over 208,500 households, conduct 39 shred days that generated 220.45 tons of paper, and purchase 119 public recycling containers.

Richmond Heights was the recipient of $4637 which will be utilized for funding 2 shred days (May 9, 2015 & September 26, 2015), 40 cases of recycle bags (available to residents now at City Hall in the Recreation Department) and newspaper ads to publicize the shred day events.
